Pratt & Whitney is to expand the global network of providers that maintain its GTF engine to include Iberia Maintenance, the maintenance and engineering division of Iberia Airlines.

The Madrid-based facility will service PW1100G-JM engines for the A320neo family with full disassembly, assembly and test capability.

MRO Europe

The announcement was made at a signing ceremony with Marc Meredith, executive director of GTF Engine Aftermarket at Pratt & Whitney, and Andy Best, CTO for Iberia, during the MRO Europe conference.

With more than 10,000 engine orders and commitments from more than 90 customers, GTF engines now power more than 1,300 aircraft with 62 operators across three aircraft families.

To keep pace with the growing fleet, the GTF MRO network continues to expand around the globe.

‘Strong asset’

“With increasing engine orders, we continue to grow our MRO presence with capable, quality maintenance providers worldwide to ensure proximity and seamless service to our customers,” said Meredith.

“Already a proven MRO provider for the V2500 engine, Iberia Maintenance’s skill and experience will be a strong asset to the GTF MRO network.”
